Jackie Robinson & Alex Rodriguez Hit Comic Book Shelves

Jackie Robinson & Alex Rodriguez Premiere in New Bluewater Productions Comic Books

Legendary baseball greats, Jackie Robinson and Alex Rodriguez, have left the dirt-filled diamond and landed in Bluewater Productions’ newest comic books, Fame: Jackie Robinson and Fame: Alex Rodriguez.

Set to retail exclusively with Comic Flea Market starting tomorrow (June 5), for the low price of $3.99, the comics give an illustrated look into these players’ lives both on and off the field. As Rodriguez was known for his baseball techniques and public ordeals, the picture pager-turner, written by CW Cooke with art by Amer Moghrabi, “take[s] a look at his earliest days on through his most recent escapades and gives the inside scoop on this possible legend of baseball.”

Unlike Fame: Alex Rodriguez and Jackie Robinson’s Bluewater Productions’ comic book–originally released with Personality Comics–is a re-release with an updated cover created by Jon Woodard. Robinson’s animated story will only release digitally for $1.99, and can be purchased from iTunes, Amazon, Nook, Kobo, ComiXology, Google Play, DriveThru Comics, Wowio, iVerse and more.

“It’s great to see this classy illustrated biography of the Dodger legend introduced to a new generation of readers,” says Robert Schnakenberg, the writer behind the comic book.

Bluewater Productions is known for their illustrated biographies of athletic greats including David Beckham, Danica Patrick and Mikhail Prokhorov, owner of the Brooklyn Nets.
